  • The Suburban Big Six Conference baseball race just got a lot more interesting.
    Host Blue Springs couldn’t hold 7-1 and 9-5 leads in falling to Liberty 10-9 on Monday.
    The Wildcats (12-6, 7-2 conference) fell despite a huge game from Will Kesling, who swatted three-run and two-run homers. Wylson Lamb and Kyle Reed each added two hits and Corbin Hare smacked a double.
    “We didn’t play as well as I had hoped,” Blue Springs coach Marc Hines said. “We have to regroup.”
    The Blue Jays plated two runs in the top of the seventh to pull off the comeback.
    Blue Springs faces a huge game with Raymore-Peculiar today (3-1 conference).
    STALEY 5, FORT OSAGE 4: Fort Osage will not go undefeated in Suburban Middle Seven play.
    Visiting Staley scored three runs in the top of the fifth inning Monday to hand the Indians their first conference loss. Fort (12-5, 10-1) will need to top William Chrisman Thursday to claim an outright title.
    NORTH KANSAS CITY 10, WILLIAM CHRISMAN 0: The host Bears were held to four hits in suffering the Suburban Middle Seven defeat Monday. Jerry Snow suffered the loss as Chrisman slipped to 4-13 and 2-7.
    BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH LOSES TWICE: South battled two of the state’s top five teams over the weekend, but took two losses in falling to Columbia Rock Bridge 7-6 and St. Louis Christian Brothers College 6-4 Saturday at Columbia.
    Dallas Herrmann’s grand slam in the top of the fifth inning enabled South to tie Rock Bridge 6-6. But the Bruins then scored an unearned run in the bottom of the inning and held on for the victory.
    Hunter Mason suffered the loss. Taylor Sprague singled twice.
    Austin Nordike suffered the defeat to CBC as South fell to 10-6.
    “It was good competition for our guys,” South coach Ben Baier said. ”We learned some stuff about who we were.”
